Gluten, Dairy, and Soy Free Oatmeal-Banana Bread

I like to keep a bunch of bananas on hand, especially for our little guy, but they don't always wind up being eaten before they're looking a bit too brown and squishy for our tastes. The natural solution? Banana bread, of course!

I stumbled on a recipe similar to this one (though not designed to be allergy-friendly) and made it my own several months ago. I've made some changes as I go, but I think now, I'm finally happy with the results.

You'll Need:
1 1/4 Cups GF All-Purpose Flour Blend
1 Cup GF Oats
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon {sometimes I get a little crazy and add a whole teaspoon}
4 {ripe} Bananas, mashed
1/4 Cup Applesauce
1 Tbsp. Canola or Grapeseed Oil
1 Egg {beaten}
2 Egg Whites {whipped to soft peaks}

To Make:
Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Mash the bananas in a small bowl, then add in the applesauce, oil, and whole egg.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Beat the egg whites on high {use your hand mixer} to form soft peaks.
Carefully fold the egg whites into the batter, being careful not to over-mix.
Pour the batter into a greased {I use Spectrum Shortening} bread pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted at the center of the loaf comes out clean.

This recipe shared on... Slightly Indulgent Tuesday


  1. I made this last night and it turned out great! I had to make a few changes because I didn't have any applesauce so I put in some white sugar and extra oil. I also only had three bananas...but they were fairly large so I thought I could get by...Can't even tell its GF :) Another great recipe DOTW!

  2. Is there a way to do this without eggs? Egg sub work?

  3. I like the extra fluff that comes from the whipped egg whites, but yes, you can make it without. As a place to start, I would probably modify the recipe to call for TWO "eggs," and then perhaps use egg replacer, or additional oil and banana, mixed together.

  4. I made these over the weekend and then this morning and it is a great recipe. I made it into muffins though (couldn't find the bread pan) and I added a crumble to the top because I am addicted to sugar :)

  5. That sounds delish! I'm glad you enjoyed the recipe :)
